14th Annual International Folk Art Market

Worldwide Wares

For the 14th year, the International Folk Art Market is bringing earthly goods from the world over to Museum Hill in Santa Fe. This year promises to be the most expansive yet, with over 150 artists from 54 different countries gathering in the capital to share their jewelry, paintings, textiles, basketry, instruments and much more. Tickets start at $20 (and its free if you're under 16!), and the artists that travel to the market take home 90 percent of profits made over the course of the weekend, making this market well worth a visit on any of the two days it runs—Saturday or Sunday.

The World’s Largest Folk Art Festival is a Must-See for Art and Culture Lovers

Featuring 160 Master Artists from 53 Countries


Santa Fe, New Mexico—This July, the International Folk Art Market | Santa Fe—already the largest of its kind in the world—will celebrate its most diverse Market yet. One hundred sixty master artists from every corner of the globe will bring their work to this vast and colorful international bazaar. Some will arrive as celebrated cultural artists, while others will have never before left their villages, let alone crossed an ocean.

Artists from 53 countries will bring jewelry, beadwork, basketry, carvings, ceramics, glasswork, metalwork, paintings, mixed media, sculpture, textiles, musical instruments, and more. Some are honored tradition-bearers, while others are young creators reinterpreting ancient forms. Their art ranges from highly affordable to museum-quality masterworks.

Many of the artists come from developing countries where the average income is less than $3.10 a day, and where political, social, and environmental hardships can make everyday life—not to mention the creation of art—challenging. In the past 13 years, artists at the Market have earned a combined $25 million, 90 percent of which goes home with the artists, providing them the financial ability not only to continue making art but also to radically improve their lives and their communities.

Tickets range from $225 for the opening night to as low as $10 for advance Sunday tickets. Youth 16 and under receive free admission on Saturday and Sunday. For more information and tickets, go to or call 505-992.7600. Tickets are limited!
